John A. HOOTON (1937)

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Valerie Report 31 Jul 2013 21:34

John A. HOOTON is thought to be the son of IVY KATHLEEN BARNES (1907) AND
William J. HOOTON 1908

My husband Thomas Michael Barnes (1932) appears by research to be related to IVY
Kathleen Barnes family if she was the sister of George F. BARNES (1909) of Essex

We would like to contact John Hooton to find out more about the ancestors as we have
only recently discovered the connection with the Barnes family originally from Clyffe Pypard, Wiltshire
and GG Grandfather ISAAC BARNES :-)

Even if you contact John, don't be too disappointed if he knows nothing about ancestors.................very few people are even remotely interested in FH
